…because why wouldn’t it be?
(I guess I’m supposed to put a content warning, since there’s AN F WORD in one of these songs… *clutches pearls* So there. I warnded you.)
These guys rate a thank-you in the back pages of any book I ever publish– at least, the stories I’ve been writing or revising in the past year and a half. I don’t know what it is, their music just works for me. I relate to it, even though I probably have nothing in common with their lead singer/songwriter. It wakes me up. It relaxes me, in spite of all of the screaming. It gets my imagination all bouncy and hyper.
I keep finding songs that relate to my characters. It’s fun. I’ve shared some here before, but I keep finding more. Like this GORGEOUS a capella Billy Joel cover:
Or this one, that reminds me of the new love story in book two. *sigh*
Or this one… which has nothing to do with writing in any way, but is making me happy these days. I just started listening to their first album, and love it WAY more than I expected.
I now own everything by them I could get off of iTunes. Time for a new album…
Yeah, I’m a sixteen year old girl. I’m okay with that.
Oh, and my older son is a fan, too*. He built them a lego stage.
*Yes, I turn down the cussin’ when we’re listening in the car… even though it’s just the best cussin’ ever.

I miss doing that–picking a particular artist’s music and listening to it while I’m working on a manuscript. I’m usually splitting writing one ms. with revising another, so I’m never really centered in one manuscript for long!
